Stuck On U Sketches "Get to Know Me" Blog Hop!

 Hi everyone and Woo Hoo it's the weekend! I haven't posted in awhile but today I have a treat for you all! Over at Stuck On U Sketches we are having a "Get to Know Me" Blog Hop and we all love a good Blog Hop and then getting to know all the Amazing gals on the Design Team over at SOUS is even better! And then on top of that.........................................BLOG CANDY!!!!!!
Stuck On U Sketches Main Blog and I also have some Yummy Candy for you too!

Well enough chatter let's get on with it and hopefully you'll enjoy "Getting to Know ME, LOL"!
Sandi created the Sketch for us to create a layout about us and we hope after all the inspiration you see from the Design Team you decide to join us over at the SOUS Blog! Now if you've arrived from my Amazingly Talented and Lovely Design Team Sister Stine Ursin, you are on the right track but remember if you ever get lost or if you started here you can always hop on over to the Stuck On U Sketches Blog for the complete line up.
Now I have to tell you I had a heck of a time finding a picture of me (let alone a decent looking picture of me, lol!) but this pic has always been a favorite of mine and I've always wanted to scrap it, so what a perfect excuse! This is a picture of my Dear Daughter and I from awhile back. (Sorry about the glare, it's looks like we REALLY need a tan, and No we were not glowing, lol!) Isn't she Beautiful! Okay now we also have a few Questions that we need to answer so I'll try and be as Brief as possible but if you know me, that is going to be a chore, lol!
1. If you were a crayon what color would you be and Why?
Well Duh, I bet you can guess that one........... RED of Course, lol! I've always's just loved that color in clothes, Home Decor and Yep, you guessed it, My Hair, lol! It's just such a Fun color and you can do so much with it!
2. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
No surprises here, I'm an open book, LOL! But if it has to be something it would be that I work for Hallmark even tho I make my own cards, lol, go figure!
3. What 5 things are always on your crafting table?
Bling, Pop dots, Glitter, Flowers (all kinds), and Ribbon!
4. Your Go To embellishment is...............
I bet you can guess that one right off...........................
BLING, of course, lol! Oh yea and gotta have dimension so lots of pop dots! (Sorry that's two!) =]
5. What is your all-time Favorite Crafting tool?
My Cricut of Course!
6. Tell us about your Family, first in one word. Then in a sentence or two.
Close! We do Everything together and we are very Close, lots of Love here! 
7. What is your Dream Vacation?
Packing up in our Travel Trailer and hitting ALL the National Parks, Lakes and anyplace else that we could visit and enjoy the Beautiful Scenery all over the USA!
8. Who is your favorite Crafty Company?
I like alot of the companies but as I look around my craft space the thing I see the most is Provo Craft products!
9. Tell us a bit about your Crafty Style.
Well I go in waves I think. I don't necessarily have a certain style, I just kind of go with what I feel at the moment but I do like bold colors and since I love to use my Cricut I tend to use alot of cardstock over print papers and I just Have to have layers and of course some added Bling! But I'm really a fan of Vintage and I love to recycle! 
10. Where do you live?
Well I live in Kentucky at the moment, I grew up in So. California and then lived in Las Vegas NV for 14 years before moving to KY. Yes I know, what a culture shock, but I really like my little house in the Country and I get to have all different kinds of animals, and I live a very simple life style now and Love it! 
 Well I sure hope I didn't bore you to tears (or you haven't fallen asleep, lol) but that was kinda fun, I do have to say. I'm really looking forward to reading all my Design Team Sister's answers too, I think it will be alot of fun, I've made some really great friends from the scrappy blog-a-sphere and getting to know other's that are as obsessed about crafting as you are is so much Fun! 

Well let me tell you a tiny bit about my layout before I send you on your way to the next blog in the hop. I used a few carts on this layout, for the Title and Frame I used Sophisticated. Title cut @ 3" with the shadow, Frame cut @ 7'. The Butterfly is from Sentimentals cut @ 2". The Heart Journal card is from Sophie cut @ 3" (and yes it does open!) And the Flowers are from Flower Shoppe and they are cut @ 3", 4", & 5". Everything is popped for dimension (like I said I Love the layers, lol!) I used the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch for the punched edge. The ribobn is from Quick Quotes along with the ink which is Mocha Mama Chalk ink. And of course like I said before I GOTTA have the Bling!  
 Here's a close up of my Journaling heart, if you've been following me for awhile you all know I love my little hidden journal spots! 
 And here's a close up of the picture of my Daughter and I, and those fun flowers! (See I told you I LOVE RED, LOL!)  
 Now this is my Yummy Blog Candy I will be giving away! With Summer coming this is a perfect cartridge to do some Fun In The Sun creating with, it's an older cart but such a Fun one! I just have a couple of rules to follow (and I will be checking, lol!) You must me a follower of MY Blog along with the Stuck On U Sketches blog, You MUST leave a comment here on my blog telling me which Die Cut Machine (or Machines) you use (If you use one, that is) and why you love that machine, that's it, pretty easy don't you think!?

Theresa ~ sounds like the country life is agreeing with you! I love this beautiful layout of you and your daughter! The cuts are awesome and the colors just perfect! I use my Cricut Expression 99% of the time and have a Spellbinders Grand Calibur that I use for the little tags, etc. The Cricut has unlimited possibilities for the perfect addition to any project! I love that you can make boxes and cards too....not just flat pieces. Thanks for sharing your story! Follower #588 msmith38652@gmail.com

I own a Cricut Expression (and a few carts. I do not utilize this fantastic tool nearly enough),
A Slice (I bought on Clearance at Michaels along with a few carts),
and a Cuttlebug (that I use the most and I LOVE that I can cut metal and fabric without making any adjustments)

Beautiful layout!!! I love all the dimensions and all the details. Really enjoy getting to know you and going through your projects. Thanks!!!

I love my Cricut and I use it for pretty much every single LO and card I made since I got it. It's hard to find a project I don't use it. I love it, and I don't think I can craft without it.

TheTulipCollector said...

Theresa, What a beautiful page! I'm loving the red! So far I have heard a lot of SOUS DT's have red hair!! What a fun hop! Thanks for the chance to win! I don't have that cart and have been coveting it for a while now!!

EstherT said...

I loved reading this post - it's so happy and fun. Your LO is wonderful ... I love all the bling! I have two die cut thingies ... a slice machine that is easy to take places with me, and a Cricut that my friend bought me for my birthday (she says it covers two birthdays, and I'm willing for it to cover twice that!!!!). I'm in love with the Cricut (I have a very tolerant hubby ;)!) I've already done a whole birthday party with it for my youngest ... the mini monsters made us all happy.
~ Thanks, Esther T
